lock lugnuts

So the key for the lock lugnut for my rims is completely stripped. Any ideas on how to get them off?

Use a slightly smaller socket and hammer it on. Then use a breaker bar on it. Then take the socket off the breaker and use a screwdriver to pop out the lugnut.

Alternatively you can go to most tire shops and they have bits made specifically for stripped lugs or locking lugs.
